Yesterday I did a swimming wod!
I was nervous for this workout, because I have been sick the past couple days but ALSO because I have recognized that swimming is a challenge for me!
I have great skill when it comes to swimming the actual strokes, just not the endurance.
So I thought allot about how when I went to LifeTime and looked at the lap swimmers swimming endless laps - always noticing how slow they were swimming.
So I figured that must be the secret!
I swam for forty-five minute straight at a nice, slow pace! I alternated between backstroke, freestyle and breaststroke!
It felt great and I think I got a good workout in!
This past Saturday was an active rest day for me, so I tried a Power Yoga class at my families gym!
It was AWESOME!
The perfect mixture of challenging, and relaxing.
My favorite part of a yoga class is at the very end when you lay on your mat, close your eyes and relax.
I always feel SO rested but also energized afterwards!
I've been working really hard on eating allot better too!
Since I've been sick I've had a very small appetite...& I've also been craving fruit!
Yesterday I ate no breakfast and was hardly hungry for lunch but I forced myself to eat:
Lunch: Small Italian Salad & fruit Salad
Dinner: 3 Homemade meatballs in "clean eating" homemade sweet and sour sauce w/ brown rice and veggies.
Todays workout for me is going to be weightlifting! YAY...as long as I don't feel too sick (I'm kinda leaning toward just laying in bed all day)
Hope everyone has a great workout!
